First, a riddle: two men are consuming marijuana when a policeman walks into the room. The man smoking the joint is arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, but the man eating it is charged with a felony. Why?
(I'll post my answer - hey, there may be more than one correct answer, right? - over the weekend, but it has nothing to do with amounts or weights.)
Second, a quick shout out to a fellow prosecutor (former) writing novels. Her second has just been released and is getting great reviews. So if you're on the look-out for more summer reading, check out her book. It's been described as a legal thriller exploring the intersection of sex and power in D.C.’s most secretive worlds. Pretty timely, eh? (Click here to zip over to her web site.) I think her publisher is sending me a copy to review so I'll wait to say more.
